Here’s an acoustic version of the new single.
2 Million Heart Beats came about after singer Mia Page watched Fleetwood Mac play Madison Square Gardens in New York. A little nod to the inspiration of Nicks ‘ lightening strikes’ can be found nestled in the lyrics, however the song is a truly powerful Mohawk Radio love song, which has all the makings to be a classic.
The title and chorus for the song comes from a misheard advertisement. Mia says, “I heard it in a commercial about having 2 billion heartbeats in a lifetime, but I miss heard it for two million. I just thought it was such a wonderful idea. The idea of loving someone with every heartbeat you have in your life. From the first breath to the last….From the cradle to the grave.
I walked the streets of New York with only the chorus in my head and the beat of my feet on the city streets. I shared it with the guys through and email, and about 2 days later the song was completed thanks to the magic of the internet.’
